I buy any odd colored nail polish I can find and mix them with half used bottles of other polish just to see what shades I can come up with. I've gotten some beautiful, one of a kind shades and always get compliments on them. Mostly, it's just fun.

That's a good tip - thrifty too ! A lot of times you can get partially used nail polish at rummage sales for a small fraction of the store price. I haven't recently but have in the past !
I do this when I've bought a color that I don't really like, or when I have just a bit left in several bottles. It's a great way to lighten those colors that are too dark, darken the colors that are too light and change the ugly colors to ones that are more pleasing. (02/26/2008)
